    Hello
    cent OS is system 5 based meaning red hat the start up script is
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start or you can type service proftp start

    Hi objuan,

    Tks for your advice.

    I fixed my problem by putting "host.satimis.com host" to replace "localhost.localdomain localhost" on /etc/hosts. Thereafter proftpd started.
